Tips for Remodeling

Whether you’re going green, or not, when considering home improvement, it always makes sense to start simple.
1. Consult Energy Star: View www.energystar.gov to explore ways to make your home greener.  The website includes, product information, advice for building and remodeling, and resources for determining your home’s environmental impact.
2. Non-toxic paint: Read the labels, when buying paint, and look for non-toxic products, such as Safecoat.
3. Change lighting: Install compact fluorescent light bulbs in your home.  They last longer than standard bulbs and use about a quarter of the energy.
4. Try a blower door test: This diagnostic test uses a high-powered fan that helps pinpoint where a home is leaking air.  Homeowners can then determine which home improvements will give them the most "green" 
bang for their buck.
5. Conserve water: Buy low-flow shower heads and go to www.rainfordane.org to learn about other items that can conserve water.
6. Decorate local: When buying art, decorations, tables or anything else for your home, try to buy goods produced locally.
7. Install a solar hot water system: Save money in the long run by using a renewable energy source — the sun — to heat your water.
